Fighting a DUI

 
 

How To Challenge DUI Charges

Driving under the influence cases are rarely hopeless. Law enforcement officers can bungle roadside investigations and arrests. Breath test and other blood alcohol tests are subject to error. Breathalyzer and other blood alcohol tests can provide false readings due to factors like medical conditions and some foods. Our skilled DUI attorney in Orange County, CA knows how to identify and use these issues to challenge findings or reduce the type of DUI charge.

DUI cases often have errors or flaws

Fighting DUI charges almost always makes more sense than pleading guilty for many reasons including:

  • Law enforcement officers are required to follow strict, standardized procedures, and often they fail to do so.

  • Breathalyzers can give false readings due to device malfunctions, medical issues or more than 100 substances that interfere with the chemical readings.

  • Testing the alcohol level in blood is difficult and prone to error. When retesting police blood samples, it is not unusual to find different results or that the blood was contaminated.

The 4 elements of a Prosecutor's DUI case

 

Prosecutors are required to establish guilt in their case "beyond a reasonable doubt." This is the highest standard of proof under California law. This strict legal standard is required for any alleged criminal charges and judges can dismiss any case that is not free of doubt. The 4 elements that prosecutors use to prove their case are:

 DUI lawyer Newport Beach serving clients throughout Orange County, CA.
  1. Visual DUI detection: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) research has identified 24 visual cues for police officers to detect impaired motorists including speeding, weaving out of lanes and ignoring traffic signs.

  2. Physical signs and symptoms: Officer observations such as smell of alcohol, bloodshot eyes or difficulty walking are often easiest to discredit.

  3. Field sobriety testing such as balance, physical ability or attention level.

  4. Chemical blood alcohol tests or refusal to take a test: Blood tests can be discredited based on many factors.

A skilled DUI attorney Orange County, CA will work to identify any weaknesses in the four elements above to demonstrate a reasonable doubt in the prosecutor's case. The best DUI lawyers will carefully analyze the evidence and determine the defense strategy with the highest probability of success.

 
 

Consequences and Penalties for DUI

The consequences and penalties for DUI convictions vary widely based on several factors. The range of penalties judges can dictate are defined by statue under California's DUI laws.

Judges have discretion to impose a range of penalties depending on the seriousness of the crime committed and the quantity of prior DUI convictions. And a skilled DUI lawyer Orange County, CA has many strategies available to influence the penalties finally imposed.

A DUI conviction counts as a prior conviction on your record for 10 years. After the conviction is over 10 years old, the courts no longer consider it as a prior conviction when determining the penalties for subsequent DUI charges.

What are some other consequences of DUIs?

Ask your OC DUI attorneys to explain the following drunk driving consequences and penalties:

  • Insurance costs can go up dramatically and subject you to SR-22 insurance requirements.

  • Professional license holders such as nurses and doctors can have their licenses, insurance and certifications affected.

  • Applications for jobs often ask about convictions and if the employer does a background check, the conviction will be visible unless it has been expunged.

  • University admissions and financial aid can be affected.

  • Foreign citizens have to disclose DUI arrests and answer DHS questions when applying to adjust status, obtain visas, green cards, or even just enter the US.

  • Installation of ignition interlock devices on vehicles can be required for some convictions.

Most penalties can be reduced or eliminated

Even though consequences can be severe, a successful DUI defense can dramatically reduce or eliminate penalties if the DUI charges are successfully challenged. If your DUI involved an accident, be sure to consult the best Orange County drunk driving accident lawyer skilled in restitution hearings.

A DMV license suspension can also be avoided if you hire a good lawyer early in the process. DUI attorneys Orange County, CA can request a DMV APS hearing to save your license and utilize a range of negotiation and defense strategies to achieve the best outcome possible

How do Orange County DUI arrest and conviction rates compare to other California counties? 

California DUI arrest and conviction rates by county

Orange County has a reputation for being very tough on DUI and data collected by the California Department of Motor Vehicles confirms it is true. Among all California counties, Orange County had the second highest DUI conviction rate in the state after Shasta county.

  • Riverside County: 84.8%

  • San Diego County: 81.6%

  • San Bernardino County: 75.4%

Orange County fatalities due to DUI collisions from 2008 to 2017

My brother was charged with a DUI and we needed a Spanish speaking DUI lawyer that also really knows immigration law. My friend recommended I call Chudnovsky Law and he was so right. Ms Tsion Chudnovsky is an exceptional abogado DUI that explained everything in Espanol to my brother and she helped him with the DUI immigration consequences. Ms. Chudnovsky has a big heart and really knows both DUI and immigration law issues better than anybody. She saved my brother's license and lots of fines. She also helped us prevent so much immigration headaches and made sure he didn't have to serve any jail time. Our whole family is grateful!

Felony DUI Was Reduced To Dry Reckless. I got in an accident and was arrested for a DUI. Unfortunately there was substantial injury involved and I got charged with Felony DUI. I was really freaked out by the whole thing and what the consequences could be. Tsion and her team really went above and beyond to calm me down and educate me on my options and how they would attack the charges. After some careful research, they identified some issues with the evidence and were able to able reduce the charge to a dry reckless and I kept my license. I can wholeheartedly recommend Chudnovsky Law. They are top notch dui defence lawyers.

I was arrested for a DUI and a friend told me to call Chudnovsky Law. Tsion gave me a free consult and took the time to carefully review what happened and explain the different ways they could fight the case. She is really good at listening and putting you at ease. Since I have a professional license that could be suspended I was pretty freaked out. Even though I blew .16 at the DUI checkpoint, she was able to get the charge reduced to dry reckless. I kept my professional license and she is going to get the charge expunged off my record in a year. Very smart, hard working attorney you’d be fortunate to have represent you.
